Un jour se lèvera
Sur trois branches de lilas
Qu’un enfant regardera
Comme un livre d’images

Le monde autour de lui
Sera vide, et c’est ainsi
Qu’il inventera la vie
À sa première page

En dessinant
La forme d’une orange
Il donnera au ciel
Son premier soleil

En dessinant l’oiseau
Il inventera la fleur
En cherchant le bruit de l’eau
Il entendra le cri du cœur

En dessinant
Les branches d’une étoile
Il trouvera, l’enfant
Le chemin des grands

Des grands qui ont gardé
Un regard émerveillé
Pour les fruits de chaque jour
Et pour les roses de l’amour

Translation
A day will dawn
Upon three branches of lilac
That a child will watch
Like a picture book

The world around him
Will be empty, and it’s like this
That he’ll invent life
On his first page

By drawing
The shape of an orange
He’ll give the sky
Its first sun

By drawing the bird
He’ll invent the flower
Looking for the sound of water
He’ll hear the heartfelt cry

By drawing
The rays of a star
The child will find
The road of grown-ups

Grown-ups who kept
A surprising look
For everyday fruit
And for the roses of love
